the presidential race. and we have news to report about that race. it's for congressman jesse jackson jr.'s old seat in illinois, which he resigned. it's a heavily democratic district. whoever wins the democratic primary a week from tonight is widely expected to win the seat. that's why at the outset, 17 different democrats said they would like a chance at this one. 17. however, over the weekend that primary field got less crowded in a significant way when illinois state senator toi hutchinson, one of the front-runners, dropped out of the race. the important context here is this. new york city mayor mike bloomberg's superpac has spent $2 million and counting on pro-gun reform ads in this district. on friday, the pac launched this ad, calling out toi hutchinson by name for having an "a" rating with the nra. the other under pressure for the same reasons is debbie halvor son, who also got an "a" rating from the nra. debbie halvorson responded by including gun safety as an issue for her campaign. there it, the second thing on her issues page, gun control and gun safety. debbie halverson also posted
